Truth has its place in parenting.

It’s just not always a very big place.

Let’s face it – there are times when telling the truth to your child might traumatise them. Or you.

Like that time Flea asked me what necrophilia was. Or the time when Flea found a stash of presents in the spare bedroom, and I had to invent a whole new Christmas tradition of giving a bag of gifts on Christmas Eve.

But I’ve decided I’m an amateur in the fibbing stakes compared to some of my fellow bloggers.

Oh yes. I asked some of my favourite bloggers what is the most outrageous fib you’ve ever told your children?
